iPhone 5 specs will only see minor updates on iPhone 4

Apple's delayed iPhone 5 handset will see a September release date with only minor updates to the device's hardware

Apple will only make minor alterations in the next refresh of its iPhone handset as the iPhone 5 “does not seem to have any major updates from the iPhone 4”, new reports have suggested.

The claims, which come courtesy of Taiwanese tech blog Digitimes suggest that the next-generation Apple handset which missed the company’s usual annual product cycle and a WWDC unveiling last month will pose only minor updates from its predecessor, the still hugely popular Apple iPhone 4.

Having claimed that Apple has recently ordered 15 million iPhone 5 units from suppliers ahead of a September release date, Digitimes continued its recent run of iPhone 5 predictions announcing “sources pointed out that as the iPhone 5, which does not seem to have any major update from iPhone 4, is already set for shipment in September.”

Further recent iPhone 5 rumours have seen the mooted handset pegged as landing with a new slimmer form factor with a larger 720p HD display and metal casing whilst others have suggested the device will touch down sporting an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities, a 1GHz dual-core processor and the recently announced iOS 5 operating system.
